How to Play and Watch iTunes Movies on PS3

Q: I've purchased tons of movies from the iTunes store and now I want to transfer all the iTunes M4V videos to my PS3 so that I can watch iTunes movies on PS3 during the travel. But it seems the video files cannot be transferred and played on PS3. What's going wrong? How to solve the problem?

A: Movies bought from iTunes store are protected by Apple DRM and can only play on Apple products only. If you want to play iTunes videos on PS3, you will need to remove DRM protection from iTunes movies and convert M4V to PS3 compatible video files like MP4 and AVI.

More Info about PS3

PS3 means PlayStation 3, which is the latest video game console from Sony. It is a huge improvement from the PS2, as a ton of new features was added to this newest device. While the PlayStation 2 primarily functions as a game console, the PS3 is a fully-loaded digital home entertainment and computer device.

The PS3 does two of your most favorite things - play video games and watch your favorite movies at the same time. The very thing that makes the PS3 very different from its predecessor is its more advanced Central Processing Unit, which Sony calls as the Cell Processor. It is also enhanced with a much bigger memory, thus allowing users to do a range of tasks with it. The PS3 is capable of playing back high-definition movie, which is currently the most important thing when it comes to home entertainment systems.

PS3 Supported Video Format

As far as playing movies are concerned, the PS3 supports different video formats such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2 PS/TS, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, and MPEG-4. It can play Blu-ray discs, as well as most of the regular CDs, HDDs, and DVDs. Furthermore, the PS3 can also play audio files such as WAV, MP3, AAC, AA3, OMA, and MSA. It can also be used to view image files with the JPEG, TIFF, GIF, and PNG formats. All of these prove that the PS3 is indeed an all-in-one home entertainment device.

Owning a PS3 allows you to enjoy home entertainment at its best. Watch high definition movies with it. Play games with it, whether online or offline, all for free. And best of all, you can use it for your occasional music playing and image viewing as well. There is nothing a user can ask for. The PS3 is indeed the ultimate home entertainment device.

what needs to be mentioned is the fact that removing the DRM from a purchased/owned copyright video is not as perfect and simple. the choice word "strip" makes the process sound like some technical excision of a specific code from a video format. in reality, all these prorgrams do is have you play the video in real time while the conversion program records it on your computer - this is "stripping" the DRM from the video (basically, it's like recording a movie off HBO - it's a copyright movie but now you've got a copy). now the caution isn't the fact that this is what stripping the DRM means - the caution is based upon how well the program converts videos. this is where frames per second, audio track, yadda-yadda-yadda, come into play. when frames are divided into a specific number for a video format, and you convert this to another format, there is a chance that the film may look like it's running slightly on fast-forward, but it's so slight that you aren't sure. that's because even a split second difference in frames can change the video format. this also leads to problems with the way the program syncs audio to the now converted video; if the conversion made changes to the frames per second, you'll feel like you're watching dubbed 70s kung fu films.

Hello, Brad, protected M4V files currently can't be previewed due to some tech issues. When the conversion completes, you can click Find Target to find the converted video files.
This software does not work.  When it goes through the conversion process, despite saying conversion complete, the file is nowhere to be found and the preview simply says "cannot play protected m4v files".  Nice try.

Agreed, Emily. And if we can play movies on his PS3, we can spend more time together instead of him always being involved in a game!
This is something my boyfriend will definitely be interested in. I'm going to forward this over to him. He's a game and movie junkie and will definitely appreciate it! :)
